The protesters were reportedly outraged and alleged that the film shows a much-celebrated Rajput queen in poor light.
Members of the Rajput Karni Sena vandalized the sets at Jaigarh Fort which also disrupted shooting. According to the slogans that the protestors shouted, they alleged that the film has love scenes between Queen Padmini and ruler Alauddin Khilji, the roles that are being played by Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
The Karni Sena says Padmini was a proud queen known for taking her own life rather than submit to Alauddin Khilji, the emperor who attacked the Chittorgarh Fort. The Rajput Karni Sena has demanded and suggested SLB to delete any such scene in the film.

While I'm all for creative freedom, I hope there are no love scenes between the Rani and Allaudin. That would twist history and totally distort it. And that's not done. A little leeway should be given to the creative process but not that much. Rajasthani women, especially the royal women gave up their lives for honor. There's no way they would consort with another man let alone an enemy. They would rather die and that's what Padmavati does. So there can be no love scenes between them. There was only lust on the part of the Mughal ruler, not even love. He wanted to possess her so he tried to get her. She had no feelings for him except maybe disgust. This is the true story. So SLB has to be as close to the truth as possible.
That would also indicate that Padmavati was not a virtuous woman and that's not done either. So I understand the sentiments of the folks but violence is never the answer.
